ABBOT ACADEMY, ANDOVER, MASS. 




Because she welcomed us and helped us in our 
first and hardest months at Abbot: because no 
trouble of ours is too small to lie unnoticed or 
forgotten by her: because she is never too busy to 
give us clear advice and good counsel: because she 
has made a double contribution to our life at 
Abbot, stimulating the growth of our minds and 
spirits as well as our bodies: and finally because she 
has given us sympathy and understanding in 
abundance, we dedicate the Yearbook of the 
Class of 1944 to 

MARY CARPENTER 




This year has been different. It is set apart 
from other years, for it has been a war year in 
which victory or defeat have hung in the balance. 
It has also been a year in which we have begun 
to realize the part we must play in the rapidly 
changing world in which we are soon to take out- 
places. Materially we have been comparatively 
untouched by the war. We still have the neces- 
sities and manv of the luxuries of life; vet our 
thinking, our speaking, and our writing have 
been moulded bv todav's events. We face an un- 
known future the verv mvsterv of which dares us 
to fashion it into something finer and greater 
than the world has ever seen. Now is only the 
beginning. Tomorrow we go forth with a better 
understanding and a fuller comprehension of the 
great work which must be ours to do. We go on 
to the mastery of a forbidding and formidable 
future with this challenge to guide us: 

". . .turn your undying face 
To where the future, greater than all the past, 
Is swiftly, surely preparing for you." 



"£*Ue* into- fyHdertitatidUut" 



Here at Abbot we have been most fortunate to have the opportunity to live 
and work in peace. Here we can reach for new goals and discover broader horizons. 
In a world of suffering and misery we are among the favored; we still are free; we 
still possess "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." But if we disregard the 
responsibilities inherent in these precious rights, if we use these privileges callously 
or indifferently, we shall pay for our neglect even more dearly than we are now. Here 
we have begun to understand what our responsibilities must be. 

The Student Government is one field in which we tentatively exercise these 
new-found obligations. We are learning self government, how to live with people, 
how to understand their weaknesses and to sense their potential strength. The 
Christian Association has shown us a practical way of helping others less fortunate, 
and the Athletic Association in strengthening us physically is building up reserves 
which will make us better able to carry out the tasks which lie ahead. Likewise our 
war service groups, together with the other extra-curriculum activities which we 
enjoy here are giving us the practical training and the appreciation which we will 
need if we are to take our places in a democracy which is fighting for its very ex- 
istence. 

We have been well-guided along the difficult path to wisdom and maturity, 
and as we stand now at the threshold of adult life, we are grateful to the faculty for 
helping us to "enter into understanding."

The Student Government Council has played a very active 
part in our school life. It has been an invaluable link be- 
tween the faculty and the students. With quiet efficiency it 
has instituted new ideas and changes. The bulletin board 
where notices, formerly made at school meetings, are placed, 
has been a time saver and a very helpful reminder each day. 
And other changes have been made. No longer do we listen 
to symphony concerts in Boston with wan and pallidly 
artistic faces. Now there is the bright bloom of Helena 
Rubinstein or Elizabeth Arden on our lips, and our morale 
has soared. In early fall and late spring we wander without 
stockings the ways of Andover. Seniors may lunch at the 
Andover Inn on Saturdays if they have the ready cash. 
Faculty and student tables have been used at Sunday meals. 
As a group of our own representatives the Student Govern- 
ment has made these changes. The Council is our executive 
body — the center around which revolves our school life. 

The Christian Association has also been busy. The services 
on Sunday night have been changed to include more music. 
The Christmas Party was again very successful and very 
strenuous. Any girl who has ever attended it has perfected 
to a high degree the art of catching two beanbags and a 
basketball at the same moment. At Christmas the Old Rec 
Room blossomed into a toy shop with all shapes, sizes and 
descriptions of dolls. There was everything from bouncing, 

[12]

blond, blue-eyed babies in pink and white to startling rag 
dolls in plaid suits. The A.C.A. Board was kept busy wrap- 
ping and tying up packages until almost the hour of depart- 
ure for vacation. This spring the Red Cross Campaign was 
very successful, and Abbot helped to send the Andover 
quota over the top. Spring housecleaning uncovered old 
books or new and unneeded books for Greek Relief or the 
U.S.O. Most important of all, this year the A.C.A. chapel 
services have left a deep and profound impression which we 
shall never forget. The talks about Northfield interested us 
intensely, and Northfield will certainly have a large Abbot 
delegation this year as a result. Some unusually good 
speakers at vespers have added variety and stimulated our 
interest in hitherto unexplored fields. One of the most out- 
standing occasions was that on which a discussion was held 
between a priest, a rabbi, and a Protestant minister. Repre- 
sentatives from Germany, Belgium, and China were note- 
worthy among our vesper service speakers. 

The squad walks decided on by the A.A.A. have left us 
with hardened muscles and the beginnings of a star track 
team. Because of the number of girls filled with ambition and 
the love of walking, the points have had to be rearranged. 
The cherished shield now hangs in the New Rec Room, 
tantalizing Gargoyles and Griffins alike. The Athletic Asso- 
ciation has given us this year new enthusiasm and spirit for 
sports.

Working for a Better Future 

War Service classes have taken on a greater importance this year. 
They were undertaken willingly, for there is the prevailing urge to 
"do something." 

In First Aid victims were bandaged enthusiastically and thor- 
oughly, slings were slung neatly and square knots tied. Week-end 
themes developed from the wide range of possibilities in Miss Elvedt's 
problems. Meanwhile surgical dressings overflowed the infirmary 
basement, and the knitters seemed to be outfitting a regiment. 

Members of the Child Care group gladly returned to their not-too- 
distant childhood, becoming regular hellions between the ages of two 
and six. Vitamins in our diets were carefully checked and rechecked by 
the members of the Nutrition Class. We expect them to announce the 
discovery of a new vitamin c 2 3 which is contained in carrots, cabbages, 
and cod-liver oil. In sewing, needles were threaded with great energy 
and willingness. Some learned how to "sew a fine seam" and adorable 
outfits for children were turned out. 

There is still a stampede and then, after a moment of silence 
filled with sheer delight, the cries of "P-48" or "No, B-'-24" rise to the

heavens. These avid aircraft spotters wait all day long for the sweet 
throb of airplane motors. 

The Mechanical Drawing Class, looking quite professional with 
T-squares, drawing boards, and triangles, floundered through the 
interpretation of orthographic drawing. Columbus made no discovery 
as exciting as our own triumphant discovery of a "hidden line"! 

We worked hard at these classes, knowing that through them we 
were helping or shall help the war effort in some way. Although our 
achievement now seems small and insignificant, it was a starting point. 

Discussion Groups were a source of much enlightenment. Our 
knowledge of the facts of the war were strung into a comprehensive 
pattern. Meeting in small groups as we did, we were privileged to ask 
more questions than we could ask of lecturers on the platform. In these 
discussions the ideas presented by outside speakers became clarified, in 
some cases, or when they conflicted a definite reason for this clash of 
opinion was understood. The discussions, we feel, were an important 
and necessary part of our school life, for we must understand the world 
in which we live in order to work for a better future.

Working for a Better Future 

These five organizations have provided outlets for further 
ventures into the fields of art, literature, and drama which 
will rise to greater prominence in the years to come. 

Courant has presented its material vividly and well; alive, 
swift sketches have increased interest and amusement. 
This is one of the bi-annual miracles of the school year. 

A.D.S. presented scenes from Victoria Regina when we 
were swiftly projected into the atmosphere of plush and 
marble-topped tables. We felt it was one of the best per- 
formances A.D.S. has ever given. 

The Choir has earned our respect and gratitude for their 
wonderful singing at vespers. And each year we marvel at 
their courage and endurance, when they arise at 5:00 to 
sing Christmas carols in the cold, cold morning of the day 
we depart for vacation. 

Fidelio sang long and hard, practicing for the concert 
with Governor Dummer Academy. After that snatches 
of Gilbert and Sullivan permeated the air as the two per- 
formances of 'The Pirates of Penzance" came nearer and 
nearer. Members of Fidelio became real "slaves to duty." 

Last of all, the Yearbook Board has struggled with 
people, places and events. We hope that we have presented 
this Abbot year as fully as priorities would allow!

endurance and physical fitness 

Hockey was more exciting than ever this year. Orange 
practice balls flew through the air, demolishing sticks, shins 
and other obstacles, to the huge enjoyment of the P. A. boys 
on the stone wall. Even in a snow storm the Gargoyles were 
able to carry oft' top honors on Field Day, but the Griffins 
made it very hard for them. The basketball team played 
Punchard High School and beat them by quite a wide 
margin. The Gargoyle team crashed through to a victory, 
much to the surprise and dismay of the unsuspecting Griffin 
basketball stars. 

Tennis lovers played until the snow came in the fall. Then, 
eager for new games, they were caught in the spring snow 
storms. Fall Field Day showed the Gargoyles on top in 
tennis singles, the Griffins taking the doubles, both matches. 

The first dance classes brought sore and aching muscles. 
Some hard-stretched members of the class could not laugh 
for several days. However, soon everyone became limber and 
ready for the dance routine at the end of the winter sports 
period. 

Gym classes did drilling and exercises that the WACS or 
the ^YAYES could well admire. At the gym demonstration 
those who jumped, climbed, or balanced, no matter how 
proficient or confident, made the audience break into a cold 
perspiration each time they performed. Sadly enough for the

and developing ideals of fair play 

Griffins, the Gargoyles won the competitive gymnastics. 

Tumbling too was included in the winter sports. Somer- 
saults over one, two, three, four, and five ( ?) people, merry- 
go-rounds, and headstands amazed us. We all have a very 
soft spot in our hearts for those on the bottom of the pyra- 
mids. 

Spring sports went too swiftly. We seemed hardly to have 
begun them when they were finished. The baseball teams 
looked like professionals with their hits into the far field 
and their long slides home. Each team played hard for its 
side, encouraged by the enthusiasm of the two captains. 
With the invaluable aid of Lister and Gus Jr. respectively, 
the Gargoyle and Griffin leaders saw their teams safely to 
the end of the year and the final award of the Shield. Work- 
ing with them, the cheer-leaders gave us songs with vigor 
and vitality to help the teams along. 

The "A" Society is made up of girls who have worked 
long and steadily at sports and walks, and have reached the 
goal of two hundred and fifty points. Those who are privi- 
leged to wear the "A" have a real sense of achievement. 

Sports this year have taken on a new seriousness, and a new 
purpose. More than ever before we recognize the need for 
strong bodies well-equipped to answer to our bidding.

"Qo. QvOU to. A/a/Ue* Jtututf" 



We feel that we have truly "entered into understanding" here at Abbot. We 
shall need all of this understanding when we leave the familiar ways and faces, the 
planned and well-ordered life we have found here. It is hard to break from the 
smooth, well-worn paths, and it is even harder to break out new trails. This is the 
first real step we have taken alone into the complicated business of living. It is a 
moment of hesitation, perhaps of doubt, but it is pregnant with the promise of 
fulfillment. 

Now we are more self-reliant than we have ever been before. The training 
which we have received here is ours to draw upon, according to our individual needs. 
W T e have received a set of high standards; we have had given us ideals of courage 
and endurance; we know how to face difficulties, to see the unpleasant as well as the 
pleasant with clear, steady eyes. All these we have to help us live better and more 
nobly. 

We go forth to conquer, with an eagerness to plunge into the struggle. We go 
forth with a buoyant step and high hopes. But we leave with a feeling of poignant 
regret. We know others will follow us. We know that more and more will come. 
But we wonder if it will be the same. We wonder if they will experience in their last 
year all that we have felt and we hope that at the end of their Abbot days they too 
will find the same gateway to "nobler living" which we have found.

Tis true this is a band of gold, 

But deeper meaning lies untold, 
Of truth and virtue, high ideals, 

The prize of friendship it reveals. 

Our eager wishes to attain 

Have led us in the past to gain 
A will profound, a vision clear, 

Creating love and faith sincere. 

So strong and firm this little band, 

That binds our lives in heart and hand, 

May we in future vears ahead, 

Remember paths that here we tread.
